ATA 103 Notice Updates Fuel Filtration 2009 ATA 103 Notice
In the latest revision of ATA 103 (ATA Spec 103 Revision 2009), many of the changes directly impact fuel filtration. This link provides some of the major changes and what they mean for those in the fuel handling industry.

Hydro Kit MII
Velcon Aviation Fuel Hydrokit II
DESCRIPTION
The HydroKit MKII is an effective “Go, No-Go” field test designed to periodically check for free water, which is removed to ppm levels by properly operating filter/separators, Aquacon ®, and monitor vessels. Samples are normally taken downstream of the vessel, but they can also be taken at other points in the fuel distribution system. The HydroKit MKII is designed to indicate free water in excess of 30* ppm by changing the powder contained in the sample tube to a pink color. Thirty ppm is generally accepted as the maximum amount of water permissible when fueling aircraft. The HydroKit MKII is designed for “fail-safe” operation, with false negative readings unlikely. Almost any error in performing the test will indicate the presence of wet fuel. If the sample indicates the presence of excessive water, it is always a good practice to repeat the test on a second sample.

Diesel Hydro Kit
Diesel Fuel Water Detection Kits
DESCRIPTION
The HYDROKIT® is an effective “Go, No-Go” field test designed to periodically check for free water, which is removed to ppm levels by properly operating filter/separators, Aquacon®, and monitor vessels. Samples are normally taken downstream of the vessel, but they can also be taken at other points in the fuel distribution system.

The HYDROKIT® is designed to indicate free water in excess of 200 ppm by changing the powder contained in the sample tube to a pink color. Other concentrations can be estimated using the other colors on the card. The HYDROKIT® provides better water determination than ASTM D2709 or D4176. The HYDROKIT® is designed for “fail-safe” operation, with false negative readings unlikely. Almost any error in performing the test will indicate the presence of wet fuel. If the sample indicates the presence of excessive water, it is always a good practice to repeat the test on a second sample.

Swift Kits
Velcon Swift KitDESCRIPTION
The patented* SWIFTKIT is the first practical device to determine the Interfacial Tension (IFT) of aviation jet fuel in the field. The IFT value is a general indication of the surfactant (surface active agent) level in fuel; higher IFT values indicate lower surfactant levels. Surfactants can disarm coalescer elements, which could allow excess water downstream and into the aircraft.
